Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo targets further improvements despite win over Southampton Express News
Manager pleased with his side but believes they can’t get better after a tough test
Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo insists Wolves must remain grounded as their fine start continued following victory over Southampton.
Ivan Cavaleiro scored with his first touch in the Premier League before Jonny Otto added a late second to hand Wolves a clinical 2-0 victory in an even game at Molineux.
Cavaleiro, who missed the start of the season with a back injury, was on the pitch for just 94 seconds to help Wolves rise to eighth in the table and they have lost just once this season.
He said: “We are happy knowing it’s only the start. There’s a long way to go and we have to improve.
“Southampton really put us against the ropes, it’s not easy and tough moments will arrive and we have to be ready for it.
“Whether we deserved it or not, you never know. We know we are ready and able to adapt to any scenario, even when you are not having the ball.
“If you asked if we deserved to win I would say yes, probably Mark Hughes would say no. That’s the game and that’s football.”
